Grand Rapids, MI (PRWEB) June 12, 2014
Optio Data announced today they have been selected into VMware’s Elite VSAN Partner Program. Having launched the Elite Partner Initiative in May, the program provides a unique introductory market opportunity for qualified partners to collaborate with VMware on the newest technologies such as Virtual SAN and NSX.
Only partners holding VMware’s highest authorization status of Premier are eligible to be selected into the Elite Partner Initiative. Eligible Elite VSAN partners must have an established services practice, and highly advanced technical resources to work with VMware on new customer deployments and new product strategies. Optio Data was recently named VMware’s North American rising star partner of the year.
“VSAN and NSX represent a paradigm shift in terms of how IT can leverage VMware in their environment. The investments we’ve made in training our sales and technical staff; insure Optio Data's ability to help customers successfully evaluate, design and implement Virtual SAN," said Jeff Stevens, Executive Vice President of Optio Data.
Attaining Elite VSAN partner status puts Optio Data into a very select group of VMware partners who have access to the latest VSAN technologies, product developers and demonstration environments, enabling Optio Data to support literally any customer deployment opportunities. Having Elite VSAN Partnership designation also makes Optio Data eligible for VMware’s Software Defined Storage (SDS) Elite partner status.
Optio Data is now offering exclusive preconfigured VMware Virtual SAN bundles with 11TB Flash Optimized Nodes.
